Hi All --
I recently picked up an eMachine 6805, and got it up and running FC2,
using the 64-bit version of the OS. Overall, it's not bad.
I realize that the Broadcom 802.11g chip is a LONG way from being
supported, at all (any change in this?), so I went out a picked up a
Netgear WG511, 802.11g. This card uses the prism54 module / driver, and
works VERY well if I do not use WEP.
However, if I'm using WEP, it doesn't work at all. It cannot fetch an
IP address, or anything. The hex key is being stored in
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/keys-eth1, in the format:
I've tried with several different keys (always key 1 on the router), and
two different routers / access points / firewalls. Under Windows, this
same card has no problems.
Is WEP working with prism54? What about on the 64-bit kernel?
What else am I missing?
